Evercool Develops New Performance Low-Profile CPU Cooler

Evercool added a new low-profile CPU cooler to its lineup, the HPL815-EP. Although a little diminutive, measuring 106 x 95 x 45 mm, weighing 320 g, the cooler supports all popular sockets, including LGA1366, LGA1156, LGA775, AM3/AM2+/AM2, including six-core Intel Core i7 980X, and AMD Phenom II X6 1090T. The design a CPU base in which four 8 mm thick copper heat pipes make direct contact with the CPU, conveying heat to a dense aluminum fin array that propagates along the plane of the motherboard, instead of perpendicular to it (like a common tower-type cooler). A 92 mm fan latches onto the heatsink using metal clips. The fan spins at 1,000~4,000 RPM. Evercool did not let out pricing details.

wait, 4000RPM? Isn't that a bit of a hazard?

om nom nom eating all your fingers.


at a guess, they went for a high RPM fan so that it can cool well even with the smaller size.

Only if somebody is stupid enough to stick something in it while it's spinning at 4k. If they are, they deserve the resulting carnage.

The old Athlon and oldie S478 heatsinks with the thin 80mm fans ran at 3.5k+ RPM and I could stop them with my finger with no ill effects. I doubt this is any more dangerous.

Looks interesting. Though i'd flip the fan around. The way i use it on my AXP-140. It's pulling the air from the heatsink instead blowing on it. Just works better in my case because it sucks hot air directly out through PSU. And doesn't heat up the CPU socket surroundings. They always say these fans help keep the stuff around CPU socket cooled but in my case it was in fact heating it up.

its bigger. a 92mm fan at 3.5K rpm has a lot more mass per blade than a 60/70mm fan does.

Physical dimensions of the 92mm fans also make them very loud regardless of which one you use. They are always noisy. If you use same RPM 80mm or 120mm they will be much silent. It's a weird phenomena, but it's true.

On the atomic level, sure. On the real-world level, you're talking about a difference of between 70g (70mm) and 82g (92mm). ;)

which at the same RPM, is gunna hurt a lot more.

I can't imagine that thing fitting on some boards. What with RAM in the way as well as other components. I've seen many that just do not have that much room around the socket.

A "dense aluminum fin array" helps with cooling but at the same time when the fins are this close they have a tendency to plug up with dust that much quicker.
